Inviting Vendors and Food Trucks to Join Us ,Click Here for More Information.

Due to a Severe Weather Advisory, our planned event for this Saturday, June 29th, has been postponed.

After careful consideration, we decided it was best for everyone’s safety to reschedule the event. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  The severe weather is also delaying other local events. 

We are also deeply sorry to have to delay our event as hundreds of people and organizations have come together to make the Prince George’s Proud Day Event possible including vendors, food providers, bands, sponsors, park staff, technical staff, volunteers, and more.

Our sincere thanks go out to them, and we will reschedule this event as soon as we are able to secure a suitable date.

Until then, we will promote our sponsors and hope that you will remember and support them by visiting pgcday.com.   There you will find a list of our event supporters.  

Due to our supporters’ generous gifts, this event is free of charge, and we will be honoring their support of our nonprofit organization even more once we finalize our new date.

We hope you know that seeing the Prince George’s County community embrace our event has been humbling.  We look forward to returning that respect and love at our rescheduled event.

We hope you will stay tuned for updates by following us on Facebook or revisiting this website.

Again, thank you all for your support of this event. Without you, we wouldn’t have even been able to imagine this.   Your support enables our nonprofit organization to provide essential support to firefighters, EMS personnel, and our community.     We invite you to learn more about our work in the community by visiting pgfd-foundation.org.

We will be in touch as soon as we know more.

Kind regards,

We've Joined Forces

We're serving more. Because of you.

In order to effectively combat the epidemic of homelessness affecting nearly 80,000 people in New York City and to meet the needs of our neighbors across the New York metro area, Caridad and Drib Rescue Mission have joined forces with The Env Mission. Leveraging more than 400 years of combined service, three historic organizations have united to reimagine the fight against poverty and homelessness.
